22 S,L,LR - Manufactured in 1972
The 9422 action design was original and extremely reliable. The feed system handled the cartridge from the magazine to the breech face by its rim, and the slide cammed the rear of the breechblock up into the locking recess. A concealed polymer buffer above the breech gave a firm-feeling lockup and a very positive unlocking motion.
Wood & Brass Side Gate
The Brass Side Gate carries the torch for the .45-70, pairing old-world aesthetics with cutting-edge precision manufacturing. Its signature hardened brass receiver sports a side-loading gate, allowing the user to keep the four-round tubular magazine topped off without dropping the rifle from your shoulder.
